Jamie Varner vs. Donald Cerrone II set for WEC 51

Former WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone will have another go at one another, this time at WEC 51.

WEC 51 is expected for September 30 from the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

Varner recently made the news of the bout public via his official website, stating:

So my next fight will be a rematch with Donald Cerrone I hope to be the co-main sept 30. So any questions that were left after the last fight will be answered sept 30!

Varner ended up on the winning end of a controversial technical decision following an illegal knee from Cerone during the pair’s first meeting in January of 2009.

Both fighters are looking to get back into the win column, as Varner was recently submitted at the hands of WEC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson before going a draw with Kamal Shalorus, and Cerrone also suffered a submission defeat to Henderson in his prior outing.

    I’m not always interested in rematches, but I’m looking forward to this one. Varner looked good early in their first fight, but was getting the worst of it when it ended. Varner was injured even before the knee, so I don’t know if that’s why Cerrone was more effective towards the end. Regardless, it’s going to be another war. I think Cerrone has more power, so I’ll pick him, probably by decision.

  • Dufresne says:

    Woohoo! Love this matchup.

    I personally think Cowboy is the better fighter here, and I’m hoping he gets the W here so he can get back in line for a rematch with Henderson.

  • Rich S. says:

    Man, WEC really has a thing for recycling the top four or five guys in each division over and over again..

    I guess I’m not complaining, they’re almost always exciting fights..

  • Dr.Stoppage says:

    Jamie Varner vs.Donald Cerrone II ?

    You mean Varner’s fighting Donald’s kid?
    Maybe he’ll do better this time.

  • AR15 says:

    Oh yeah!!! Finally we will get the all the answers we’ve been waiting for. I really hope Cowboy knocks the lisp out of Varners mouth!
    With that being said Idk if I’d like to see a Cerrone vs. Henderson III…didn’t we already see this in the UFC w/ Shamrock & Tito??? We all know what happened there.
